Please untie the ‘nots’ that are in my heart, my mind and my life. Remove the have nots, the can nots and the do nots that fill my mind. Erase the will nots, may nots and might nots that find a home in my heart. Release me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.
Most of all, I ask that You remove from my heart, my mind and my life all of the am nots that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough.
In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
Adapted from a prayer found in the St. Mary’s Church bulletin, Saugerties NY
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:37-39
